Elves of Elf Elementary

Happy Holidays Everyone!

We have had a great time these past few days in Second Grade!  My class has been busy creating wonderful writing pieces centered around the book "Elf Elementary."  I also incorporated some great activities from Mrs. Perry's Wonderful Elf Unit - check it out here:

    Page 3 - Double Bubble Map (just a generic one from Thinking Maps Book) Comparing Elf Elem. to our School

    Page 4 - Brace Map I had the students draw their own Elf - their drawings were priceless and I was so glad I didn't use clipart. They added the braces to separate out the parts of an Elf

    Page 5 - Was an Elf Survey in which they answered 4 questions and then got to add details about their elves based on their answers. Not my original idea but I say it on the preview of the Elf Glyph from Glyph Girls @ TPT. I love the survey idea because then they aren't picking their answers based on what they are getting - but what they really think. Then I told them what each answer means in the glyph code.

    Page 6 - I just used some clipart to make a writing from for the students to write their story on about what they would do/learn if they went to Elf Elementary.

    Handle - I found this on pinterest (its not for Holidays around the world - but it was just the thing I was looking for to help publish our Elves writing pieces)

    I am so grateful to all the wonderful teachers who have shared these ideas on their blogs. My students really enjoyed them and I hope yours do too!
